Imagine right now here in this place
Dancing was the province of the human race
The experiment godhead could have in mind
To aim all toward joy so we will find
As we engage in our searching and rush
We get too serious and take on too much
We might realize that our hardened edge
In countless transactions creates a wedge
And that includes how we deal with our self
Put your intensity back on your shelf
At the end of this life you will leave your body
While you are here don’t miss the party
We discover joy in what gets us high
It’s communion with others not our head in the sky
Remember you always get what you give
Don’t sit by yourself engage and live
It’s all about who you’re with on this journey
Not Nobel Prizes PhD’s piles of money
Look at your life ask “Am I celebrating”
The joy that you feel that’s worth calibrating
What is your favorite kind of celebrating?
What brings you great and sustainable joy!
When was the last time you experienced it?
How often do you experience it?
When will you experience it next?
Can you put it on your calendar?

I have always been a seeker, always looking for the answers to what seekers ponder. I can remember Dr. Maxwell Maltz and Psychocybernetics; Dr. Carl Rogers On Becoming a Person. Moving through my legal training and practicing law the focus was always about people and how to better their lives. All that searching, reading, studying and introspective work culminated in this collection of daily readings for seekers.
My work in the world has progressed from fighting legal cases to mediating divorces to helping people understand the essentials of relationship and collaborating to these poems. How can we collaborate effectively and work with each other in harmony to create the world we seek. How can we mindfully enable this world to become a place that works for all.
My prayer is that through introspection using these poems as a guide we can all grow together in making the world the Heaven on Earth we all aspire toward.
